Vijay Sethupathi is on a roll. After the resounding success of 96, our beloved Makkal Selvan once again has an impressive lineup of films for the coming year. There is Seethakathi which is touted to be a special Vijay Sethupathi performance for his 25th film. He plays a fragile old man looking for redemption. A role which reminds of Ulaga Nayagan Kamal Hassan. It is all set for release on December 21st. The date sees a lot of releases but Sethupathi might just wow us with a wonderful performance. It is the second time Vijay Sethupathi plays an old man after Orange Mittai.
Along with this, there is the untitled project with Cheran. Cheran who was once one of the top directors of Tamil Cinema has been off the radar after JK Ennum Nanbanin Kadhai. He is one director who can easily bring the family audience to the theatre with his family drama kind of films. It is good that Cheran is making a comeback with Vijay Sethupathi. It also makes us curious to see the chemistry the two of them bring to the table with their new combination. More details on the film are awaited soon. Hopefully, it will be one awesome comeback for Cheran.
At the other end, we have Pettai with Rajinikanth which is all set to release as a Pongal Celebration. The film is directed by Karthik Subburaj and will see Rajini returning to the mass hero template after a long time. The single with vocals by Anirudh and SPB is already a chartbuster. Adding SPB’s voice is actually a masterstroke. SPB comes back after Lingaa. The song is energetic and fits the superstar image to the tee. Today Vijay Sethupathi’s look will be revealed. He is all set to rock as a badass villain. Let’s wait and watch.
